Scientific expeditions around the world. This is the theme chosen this year for the 13th edition of the Festival Lands from elsewhere, which will be held from November 24 to 28 at the Toulouse Museum. This theme perfectly resonates with the Museum’s DNA which, through its exhibitions and its cultural season, makes us aware of the beauty of the world and the need to preserve it.
With the festival Lands from elsewhere, the result of a close partnership between the Délires Ink Association and the Toulouse Museum, it is indeed about escape and travel. But the festival also underlines how fragile our planet is and to what extent human activities impact the future of biodiversity and that of peoples. By giving a voice to explorers, filmmakers, writers, researchers and creators, Earths elsewhere creates bridges between scientific research and the public.
To better inform the latter of the major upheavals of the 21st century.
To highlight fascinating and little-known territories.
For a reflection on our own practices.
This 13th edition will bear witness, through screenings, meetings and workshops, to the both strong and fragile beauties of nature, the sometimes ambiguous relationships we have with it. We will discover that there are many landscapes and places still unknown or unknown, near or far, to discover in order to better protect them. We wonder about the issues related to cultural diversity.
Health crisis requires, it is a hybrid festival that will be offered to visitors. While all the events will take place at the Museum, it will be possible to follow the conferences via a dedicated website.
